WTF is wrong with you people? You did not buy food though I said that Sandy could turn nasty, NOAA said SANDY would turn nasty. Just about everything from the Mississippi East could turn nasty from 3 foot of snow in the mountains to a 15 foot storm surge or higher hitting the coast and what did you do? Hell, I warned folks on the 24th that they should get ready and test some preps. I ain’t donating to stupid people and that is what you are, and it’s time for you to get out of the gene pool. Honest citizens are left at the mercy of thugs because they are not allowed to have a gun as that gives the Leftists running NYC a case of the vapors. Bloomberg is more worried about a R congress critter getting elected in FLA. and had to be shamed into ordering an Evac of Zone A via the right wing blogs.
What is your major malfunction? For about $125. 00 (My shopping list) you can have real food that will feed a family of 4 for 6 weeks + A single person for about 6 months. What don’t you get, what don’t you understand? 12 gallons of Kerosene will light 1 lamp over 5 hours per day for a year. 12 gallons =-12 months. Math seems simple to me and it can be bought for about $100.00-$120.00.
I don’t care what Bloomie does. If he thinks 17 oz of soda, a bit of lard or salt is the biggest challenges NYC faces that’s on him. You voted for the SOB that’s on you. Stop looking for a handout when you are morons and stop electing some kumbayah politicians when you feel guilt. Buy a fucking dog that adores you a cat that ignores you and move on with your life.
REALITY CHECK you got no food, water, heat, sanitation or security. So what are you going to do next payday Sparky? Will you piss, bitch and moan or will you take control of your life? We crazy preppers will help you. I don’t know about the other preppers but I suspect most of us like a challenge. I make beer, bread and mead. I’m learning herbs and growing food in buckets. I’ve learned to spin and working on the knitting thing.
I know preparing is not easy, simple or cheap. But it may be a lot easier than you imagine or dreamed it could be.
